Road works alongside Iron Acton Road

For people who may be wondering what the works next to the Iron Acton road near Cog Mill are for - they are part of a massive sewer scheme, the Frome Valley Relief Sewer.

This runs from Iron Acton to Bradley Stoke, and will carry waste water from places like North Yate to the sewage treatment works in Avonmouth.

The sewage system has been inadequate for years, and Cllr Dave Hockey has been fighting to get a decent system to stop sewage overflowing into the river at peak times.

More details of the project are explained here.
